But it would seem that Charlotte Church is far from flush with cash if a recent interview is anything to go by.

The 28-year-old singer opened up to Stylist magazine about her wealth – which in 2003 was reported to be around £25 million – admitting that most of her fortune has been spent.

She said: “I haven’t got a lot of money.

“I’ve got enough to be comfortable if I was reasonable for the rest of my life, but I’m not reasonable, so I will have to find a way to sustain my lifestyle.”

Well at least she’s honest about it.

In 2010 The Sunday Times Rich List reported that Charlotte’s wealth dropped dramatically to a still impressive £11 million.

Charlotte shot to fame and fortune at the age of 12, performing in front of likes of the Queen, the Pope and Nelson Mandela.

Following five successful albums – including a crossover from classical to pop – Charlotte took a step back from the limelight, returning with a rockier sound.

Unfortunately, her new material failed to set the charts alight with her previous nine singles failing to reach the top 40.
Charlotte Church wants to pursue other avenues other than singing.
Undeterred, Charlotte admits that she has recently experienced a revelation of sorts.

She explained: “It only recently dawned on me that I don’t have to be a singer.

“What a novel idea! I guess I’m lucky to have a bit of wealth behind me that I can go to university.

“I never want to stop educating myself. And I want my kids to see my career and see that it’s possible to dart from one end of the spectrum to another. I feel like I know my own power and strengths now – if I set my mind to something, I absolutely will achieve that.

"I work with these amazing people, I’m in control of my own creativity and work life and I can provide for my children. Fingers crossed it carries on. It’s a privileged position to be in.”
